A major hub for visitors exploring Ireland's western regions, Galway serves as a city of art and culture, renowned for its vibrant lifestyle and numerous festivals.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Burren Birds of Prey Centre and Burren National Park. Take a break from the city and head to Croagh Patrick and Lahinch Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Galway: Kilkee Cliff Walk (in Kilkee), Ashford Castle (in Cong) and Cliffs of Moher (in Liscannor). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Galway Bay, take an in-depth tour of Galway City Museum, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and experience rural life at Killary Sheep Farm.
